In celebration of Earth Day, Mechanics Bank Arena, Theater and Convention Center has announced a cell phone recycling drive that will take place starting today until the end of May. In partnership with Alianza Recycling and AEG 1Earth, unneeded cell phones will be collected at all Arena and Theater events through the end of next month, including the US Army All-Star Bowl April 24th, Marvel Universe Live May 7th-10th, and the Eagles on May 26th.
“We are happy to celebrate Earth Month at our facilities by collecting unwanted cell phones from members of the community,” said Mechanics Bank Arena Director of Operations Adam Miller. “By partnering with Alianza Recycling to safely dispose of these cell phones, we hope to keep harmful chemicals out of our air and water supply.”
Guests wishing to recycle phones may bring them to the Guest Services booth in the Arena or Theater. For more information on the recycling program, call 661-852-7300.
